These are shit ones, I regret after buying them. They picks up alllll ambient noise while calling which makes you unable to hear/talk properly. If you are in noisy environment, then calls are like Hammering on your head due. to bloody 100% ambient noise. Not recommended at all.

I have the wh-1000xm3, but I bought them used and the NC/ambient may be broken. I'm trying to use the app via my pc using bluestacks. My thinking is that the prior owner reassigned the NC button and I want to switch it back. Plus I want to check out the app features. When I try to use the app it says Bluetooth not on (even though it is on and the headphones are paired). When I hit torn on it just hangs forever. When I hit cancel and try to add a device, it just turns on the headphones when I hold the power for seven seconds as directed. I've tried disconnecting the device from my computer and going through the same cycle, but it just pairs to my pc. Help. What do I do to allow the app to work via my pc? No, I don't have a working cell.

@DHRME yes I heard anc still work when wired but I'm not sure about the other touch control features, have u tested quick attention wired?
DHRME 6 months ago
If it’s powered on it should still work, since ANC works with the cable in.

These headphone are so amazing i love them so much, but if you if you are using them primarily for calls you won't be happy. My first call left me thinking they might be broken. I felt like I was talking from the bottom of a swimming pool. But for music, on their own or with my Sony dac they are the best I've ever heard.

Google Assistant is annoying. My last name is the same as a body part. Everytime I ask to call a family member Google explains what a nipple looks like.

Can’t you summon Google assistance by just tapping and holding the touch control?😐🙃

That’s because you have an Android phone. The assistant on device is something else entirely.

Brian A never use the headphone controls. Luckily they stop blinking after a few blinks. Perhaps some day they’ll see the light & add the option to turn off the LED.

I randomly found out that if you have set the button to switch to ambient sound and all and not on Google Assistant, you can tap and hold the touch on right side which opens voice command for Google Assistant (like the place you get from saying "ok Google")
DHRME Year ago
That's right but it's not the same. Activating Google Assistant with the dedicated button means that you get active notifications, you can directly respond to messages using your voice and when calling Google Assistant it's quicker than using the touch pad.

I bought MDR-1000X, those fall apart just from having them on head. After two weeks this have started to get cracks on band. Sony didn't do anything about that. After 7-8 month they fall apart, just like that. Cracks were bigger and bigger each day. 330 pounds for this crap and no refund. According to the internet, there is a lot people like me, who ended with 330 punds thrown away. Sorry, but that's not the first Sony product I've bought and it was cheap garbage. I really hate that company, and avoid. There was no help and interest from Sony to help me with issue. I even wanted them to repair those for extra fee. Nope. Now I have SkullCandy Crushers. No such a sound quality, but they are freaking durable. Plus that awesome BASS.

That darn Software update totally made my 1000XM2 worthless.. after the update they stopped pairing to any of my bluetooth devise.. thankfully Sony stepped up and replaced them for the new 1000XM3

This is really cringey to me I understand this is stuff people probably don't know but I THINK if you just read the features and the little book it comes with you would know that their is an app for it and it is on the box as well you literally can not miss it and a lot of bluetooth headphones have the switch when recieving phone calls and maybe you need to check your headphones out because I have no problem with phone calls on either ends of the call I have the Sony wh-1000xm2 I personally enjoy them a lot the only problem in my opinion are the ear pads they will be not so comfortable after around 5 to 8 months depends how much you use them
Michael Szostak
@Abel Sollewijn Gelpke he spelled "cringey" some I'm guessing no.

The first little "wind noise reduction" tip is absolutely a game changer. Thank you SO MUCH for teaching me that actually hidden feature. I don't think I would ever notice it alone. Up until the point I saw your video, I would primarily use the headphones while riding my bike, and because wind noise DESTROYES noise cancellation, I just turned it off, allowing car's engine noise and whatnot to interfere with the music. Now I can enjoy both worlds without loosing anything. Its genius. The second I turn Ambient noise(which is set to only wind noise reduction as the tip suggests) I can ride my bike, WITH noise cancellation on and no wind noise at all. normally I would hear weird microphone popping sounds because of wind. Super effective. This takes the headphones for people who ride bikes from an a 7 to a 9. Truly appreciate it!
DHRME Year ago
Haha, I came across it completely by accident as well. Indeed a game changer.

Is the update useful for other things appart for the google assistant? I just dont need it but if the soundquality improves too with the new firmware, i would update (sorry for my bad english)
mister0zorg Year ago
@DHRME thanks for the reply! It's seems they can be some issues with the update. What would you recommend? I bought them yesterday (after looking some of your videos ;) thanks for them!). So if there is a problem, i could bring the headphones back to the shop. Or doesn't worth the update the try (the google "beep beep" loop bug seems annoying too).
DHRME Year ago
Your English is fine! And yes the update is only for Google Assistant, haven't noticed any differences in the sound quality.
Hanson Year ago
Does someone know if there is any way to turn of the feedback sound of the XM2 while increasing/decreasing volume or skipping a song on the headphones??
Pedro Vasquez

In the app there's no way. just manage the volume with your smartphone if you want to avoid that sound

@DHRME thx, no because I live in Hong Kong and the sales are only in China and are scared if I have to listen to mandarin. (I only know English). Cuz I'm thinking if I should buy m2 ($200) or m3 (350). Since m3 is still 350 I'm leaning to m2. Unless it goes on sale but I doubt a new headphones will be on sale even @ Christmas
DHRME Year ago
Not that I know of. But there are 4 or 5 phrases that are present. Not too bad. Or do you mean the Google Assistant?

Can the language of the voice guidance be changed? I wanna get one this cyber Monday

Hey guys, I recently bought a used MDR1000x from marktplaats (it still has warranty etc). It seems fine and all, but wanted to know about noise cancelling: its amazing, but when I am listening to stuff. I assumed that NC would also cancel stuff while I am not listening to stuff, it does in a way: some stuff is barely noticeable but there are very low muffled sounds, and especially tv noises i can hear. Defect? or just how NC works... Yes i am being lazy and could go to a shop and check it out myself.
junaidx Year ago
Cheers lads! Just was under the assumption they cancel a lot of noise. Plus a lot of reviews that I read, really love emphasising how quiet it can get. But lol it's just comparable to putting my hands on my ears. Right now they feel marginally better than the previous one I had: sony mdr-xb950bt (around ear). Anyways Subscribed! would love to see some Dutch brothers do well
DHRME Year ago
junaidx haha. Noise cancelling is meant to cancel out like droning noises, engine noises etc. That's why you can't cancel everything out. Hope this helps. :)

Hi @DHRME could you help me to connect the mdr-1000x to the Sony app? Tnx

Tell us how to connect it to iPhone and MacBook at the same time.

Already did. You can't, you either switch off Bluetooth on the first device and then reconnect to the second or start them up in pairing mode and then connect with the desired device. Hope this helps.
